Reason #22: Championship heart from the start

Terrell Davis’ Hall of Fame pedigree showed up from start in the form of a preseason special teams tackle in his rookie season.

This play isn’t the only reason why Terrell Davis should be in the Hall of Fame, but it adds to the body of work of a man who displayed a championship heart from the very start of his career.

From the moment Davis exploded this poor soul on the San Francisco 49ers squad, the Denver Broncos knew they had found a special talent in the sixth round of that 1995 NFL Draft.

Davis would go onto to win the starting job and rush 1,117 yards and seven touchdowns in his rookie season. After that, well, a legend was made.
